Tommy Mottola presents his book'' hitmaker''


NASHVILLE, United States (31/ENE/2013.) - Behind Mariah, Michael and the constellation of stars in one of the most successful labels in history there was a man who did not talk much to the press or explained his motivations. now A decade after leaving Sony Music Entertainment, Tommy Mottola, Thalia's husband, tells her story in the book "Hitmaker: The Man and His Music." Similarly, Mottola apologizes for the failure of his marriage to Mariah Carey says the support of his label to Michael Jackson when the singer's life and career became increasingly bizarre and make an arc evolutionary music business as he has witnessed, from Elvis to the iPod.

As a record executive, Mottola took seriously the task of keeping out of reporters' notebooks. But as an author, not avoided topics of interest to followers of the industry, but rejected two previous versions of the book I did not like before finding a rhythm that felt more comfortable. "We always try to stay in the background, even with this book, "Mottola said in a telephone interview last week. "'Try to do a good job and the results speak for themselves." That was always my philosophy, but I went against my own philosophy and decided to write this book. " Mottola, a Bronx native, is a former singer led to stardom for Hall & Oates before joining the then future acquisition of Sony, CBS Records. Sony helped guide the recording business and eventually took over the global leadership of the company, which sold 8,000 million albums and won U.S. $ 65,000 million in his 15 years at the helm. Michael Jackson and Mariah Carey are just part of a long list that includes Bruce Springsteen, Destiny's Child, Celine Dion, The Dixie Chicks, Barbra Streisand, Billy Joel ... and do not forget the Latin explosion with Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony and Shakira. Their fingerprints remain throughout the music industry. "I think it was a genius ... I do not think we can go back to see something like Tommy Mottola definitely made ​​because the business has changed, "said Emilio Estefan, who described Mottola as his brother in a telephone interview Wednesday. "I definitely wrote a chapter in the music business that I can not happen again."

However "Hitmaker" written with Cal Fussman, is no fairy tale. Mottola details their successes and effort it took him to the top of the industry, but also talks extensively about his bad moments. The employer of 63 years is quite unforgiving to the executives that led him to leave Sony. "I had a vision of building all this entertainment company that obviously exists today as public companies Live Nation and many others like it, or AEG, where the company may have participated in all sources of income, "he said. "But there was no one even remotely understand what I was saying at that level." Mottola says that Jackson "broke" when downloaded from the record company and personally against Mottola amid accusations of child molestation and a drop in album sales. Mottola Jackson called the devil and began a public campaign to rid themselves of his contract it. Eventually, Mottola said, both repaired the relationship: "That happened and we ended up being great friends." But as the president of the label, Mottola was in the uncomfortable position of being the only one who said no to Jackson when the expenses for his increasingly extravagant projects began to overindulge. "We tried for him, for his sake, hit the brakes many times, "said Mottola. "And we did the best we could. But at the end of the day Michael was an adult. M was a man of 30 and 40 years when I worked with him and he could make his own decisions ... even when his advisers told otherwise ".

Regarding Jackson's legal troubles, Mottola said he fully supported the seal forming an opinion on the allegations. "We corresponded judge," he said. "We corresponded support Michael and that's what we did. Were there and support Michael as best we could." Further distancing public that Jackson was Mottola's romance, marriage and eventual divorce, with Carey, then a chorus girl of 19 years who helped lead the top. Over the years, Carey has described Mottola as driver, saying the locked himself in his mansion even after becoming the world's most popular singer. In his book, he writes that Mottola was "absolutely wrong and inappropriate" linked to Carey. "I deeply regret any discomfort or pain that inevitably caused her with all my good intentions, and particularly regret that this left scars on my two older children," he wrote in reference to the children of his first marriage. Mottola felt it was important to present his version of the story behind the "hard" and "false" descriptions that for years has given interviews Carey.

Carey said that he asked her to marry her and described as "nonsense" his statement that was restrictive and controlling. Emilio Estefan said the divorce of Carey, who was not available for comment, took his friend to a dark period staff, one who is glad to have helped to introduce him to leave behind his current wife, Mexican singer and actress Thalía, with whom he has two children. "Be that separation between him and Mariah was difficult for both," said Estefan. "I love them both, of course. I witnessed and was a friend of Mariah also agree for years in large parties and celebrations. Sometimes things happen and when this happened I saw him all alone and knew that Thalia was in New York filming a movie. " Suggested they go out to dinner: "You know what? Clicked. He called me that night and said, 'I love this girl." She called me and said,' I love this guy. 'Both are worshiped and have an amazing relationship. "

When Michael made them so much money, why would they quibble about his projects (I'm assuming short films), which the fans loved.  What MJ did back then, is totally standard and common practice today for all big entertainers.  Did MJ and him really become good friends? Hm...

There's lots of video of Mattola being interviewed, also Mariah:

Here's Michael speaking and the media totally shocked:

It might have happened but I have difficulty believing that their relationship was completely “repaired” and that they became “the best of friends”.  Like we’ve see time and time again Michael is forgiving by nature. But he is nobody’s push over and nobody’s fool. He has a memory like an elephant, and he doesn’t forget.  BTW I love it when Michael gets tough. He was soft hearted and quiet spoken, but he didn’t take no mess off of anyone, especially when it came to business and children.  That’s where he drew the line in the sand and dared you to cross it.

Hmpfh....people in the "industry" usually only write "tell-all" books when they are trying to purge their conscience or pay their bills... :icon_e_confused: 

Given the fact that Mottola has a net worth over $200 million, it's doubtful that he needs to peddle books to make "ends meet", so we can assume at 63 years old, Mottola is seeking redemption.

I'm sure his book will make him sound like he was a "hard but fair" business man and that he married his two young musical ingenue's (Mariah/Thalia) because he really did love them ( and not the money they made for him!)  :icon_rolleyes:



...As for Michael, well of course Mottola is going to say they "made peace", otherwise he'd  down in history as a total jack-arse for screwing over the legendary "dead guy". :icon_twisted:




...as for me, if the book ends up in a .25 cent bargain bin I may attempt to read it, but I can't imagine there is anything insightful in it other than the bemoaning of an unremarkable record exec. 


......JMO naturally! :icon_neutral:

Hello everyone!

Sorry if my English is not good, I'm fraçaise ... Maybe Mottola wants to redeem a reputation? But why? why now? Michael Mottola knows. He knows he is capable of putting up a hoax. He knows what Michael is capable ... Mottola anticipates the return of Michael? Mottola fear of return? Only the future will tell ... To be continued

These characters have many stories, and none is good.


MICHAEL JACKSON ~ ANOTHER WAY JEWISH MOBSTERS
HAD THEIR HOOKS INTO HIM.


"Smooth Criminal" ~ Al Malnik, (seated far right) known as "heir apparent" to Meyer Lansky, at the Palm Beach Movie Festival, 2003. I have seen thousands of photos and films of Michael, but never one registering quite such distaste in his expression.

At the time of Michael Jackson's death, faster than you could say "Mishpucka", Jackson's "friend", Al Malnik told reporters that in either 2003 or 2004, Jackson named him the executor of his will and guardian of his youngest son, Prince Michael Jackson II, better known as “Blanket”.

To do him credit, however, in interviews immediaterly after MJ's death, Malnik only spoke of deep family to family friendships and joy. In the film below, his words are proven true. He also felt Blanket best served with the love of the Jackson family.

 


Bob Norman reports Malnick and Jackson had a falling out some years ago, possibly because Jackson believed Malnick was part of a conspiracy (along with music executive Tony Mottola and film director Brett Ratner) to separate him from his stake in the Beatle's catalogue.

Malnik began making large loans (one account states $70 million) to Jackson when his career nosedived. Jackson's debt was said to be close to $200 million as of 2003, and may have been more by the time he died.

Before the (fabricated) child molestation charges, several financial rescue plans had been in the works for Jackson through a consortium of investors led by Malnik. Malnik said that a bank was about to place a lien on Neverland and other assets when he stepped in.

Malnik and Charles Koppelman, a business manager for Mr. Jackson, hoped to extend the loan's due date to December 2005, with the backing of a New York-based hedge fund. As part of the terms of the loans, Malnik was appointed as a trustee over Jackson's spending.

There was speculation that Jackson raised his $3 million bail due to criminal charges of child molestation with the help of Malnik.

The sole owner of a Georgia company, Title Loans of America, Malnik runs a national chain of loan stores that make millions of dollars from the interest charged on quick cash offered to people in desperate need of money.

Attorney General Bob Butterworth [Florida] likens the business to 'legalized loan sharking.' Car title loan companies, often funded by major auto retailers, have blossomed in every neighborhood (and America's largest was Atlanta-based Title Loans of America).

Federally chartered banks, which can't be regulated by states, have teamed up with rip-off payday loan operators to duck under bans on usury. Due to lack of regulation, Malnik's Title Loans was able to lend money legally at annual percentage rates reaching 264%.

Malnik is also associated with "fraud in the billions" con artist Joel Steinger profiled here and here.

'It was a known fact among the criminal underworld that dealing with Al Malnik was the same as dealing with Meyer Lansky,' [said] Vincent Teresa, a convicted criminal and frequent government witness currently in the federal Witness Protection Program. When Lansky died in 1983 at age 81, Reader's Digest named Malnik his 'heir apparent.'


Lansky was the real boss of the Mafia, not the Italians. "We are bigger than U.S. Steel", he once bragged, according to a bio by Hank Messick, whose book also stated on the cover "The Mob Runs America and Lansky runs the Mob."

Lansky was given a cameo in "The Godfather", shown at his birthday party carving up a cake in the shape of Cuba. In 1970, Lansky fled to Israel where so many of his Jewish underworld associates had retired. His moves from place to place to escape the law earned him the nick of "The Wandering Jew of '72".

Lansky's last years were spent quietly at his home in Miami Beach. He died of lung cancer on January 15, 1983, aged 81, leaving behind a widow and three children. On paper, Lansky was worth almost nothing. At the time, the FBI believed he left behind over $300 million in hidden bank accounts, but they never found any money

According comment #8 on a recent news story "Malnik is a crook, a thief, a liar, and did end up with Lansky’s cash, even cheating Lansky's wife out of money. Malnik preys on the poor with his check cashing stores, has abused his employees at the Forge restaurant, been sued for refusing to pay minimum wage, hires illegals as housekeepers at his house, and is persona non-grata in Palm Beach ~ he is not a 'Palm -Beacher' but lives in Manalapan and has been refused entry to every private club in Palm Beach."

Comment 11 states: "In long gone days past he was not referred to as Meyer Lansky’s lawyer, but as his frontman for numerous hotels and restaurants on Miami Beach, and yes it is likely that the fortune Lansky was thought to have ended up in Malniks hands as either his or under his control as he continued to be a frontman for Lansky’s other associates."

Comment 15: "That son of a bitch sold pictures to TMZ.com! I just saw them. What a scum he is."

In the early 1970s, Malnik was also involved with Sam Cohen's sons in land deals in Florida and the Poconos. Their companies ~ COMAL and "Cove Associates" ~ dealt with Caesar's World and the Teamsters Pension Fund, both institutions which have attracted a substantial amount of law enforcement attention

In 1962, Malnik was listed as a director of the Bank of World Commerce, a Bahamas-based institution that involved 'some of the nations' top gangsters' and was known as a "loot laundry".

Malnik is said to control the Bahamas gambling and Caribbean drug running. Malik was involved with Lansky in the setup of the Bahama's Paradise Island and Resorts International. In 1978, a Bahamian company named Appolonia Investment Limited paid $3.35 million to buy the property just north of Malnik's Ranch. Malnik refuses to divulge Appolonia's owners.

But records from the Register General's Office in the Bahamas show the principal shareholder is a Saudi Arabian prince who is a prominent member of the kingdom's royal family and longtime friend of Malnik's.

Malnik and the prince ~ a son of King Abdul Aziz, the founder of modern Saudi Arabia ~ once lived in neighboring condos in the Cricket Club. According to news stories in the 1980s, the pair also traveled abroad together. Malnik's son would later change his name from Mark to Shareef and marry into the royal Saud family.

It is known that the Saudi King would frequently send his private 747 to Florida to pick up Malnik and his associate so they could conduct business on the plane away from prying eyes.

It wouldn't surprise me if the present executors of the Jackson will, John Branca and John McClain, were fronting for Malnik or one of his Mishpucka associates. They are not letting Jackson' s mother Katherine see the agreement Jackson signed with AEG, the concert promoter in charge of what was to be his 2009 world tour.

Katherine's attorney McMillan says this contract could be a huge source of income for the estate. Michael's sister LaToya states that Jackson revised his wills every 5 years or so, and that the final one is yet to emerge.

LaToya stated in her book LaToya: Growing Up in the Jackson Family, that the Jacksons often mentioned their disgust with having to deal with "so many Jews" in the entertainment business. Was LaToya set up by Sacha Baron Cohen in the movie Bruno as part of the payback for the family's "anti-semitism"?

During the interview, Bruno chats with LaToya and gets her to sit on "chairs," which are actually Mexican workers, and eat sushi off a naked male. Finally, Bruno steals her phone so he can get Michael's number out of it. Due to Jackson's death, the scene was cut from the completed movie.

Tricking people in "interviews" is this slime Cohen's trademark. Watch this YouTube with RON PAUL, apologizing to his supporters, work and family mates for what Cohen did tin an attempt to discredit him and his honest upright ways.

LaToya herself was for a number of years in the control of Jewish racketeer Jack Gordon, who became her manager. In these interviews on British and Dutch television, LaToya details some of Gordon's violent control over her:

AMAZING THAT THIS COULD HAPPEN TO A WOMAN OF MS. JACKSON'S FAME! I READ ONCE OF MARILYN MONROE'S LIFE OFF THE STAGE. MARILYN, ANOTHER MK ULTRA VICTIM, LIVED WITH NO TV, NO STIMULATION, ONLY TAKEN OUT FOR MONEY/MATERIAL MATTERS.

You are right “characters” all of them shady at some stints in their service.  Certainly the Justice Department didn’t need for Branca to “out” anyone.  If they were doing their homework they would have gotten around to this crook eventually without any assistance from John.  He just wanted to get them off of his trail and I find that telling.
